Inquiry Interviews

This year one my goals is to use this space to talk specifically with various teachers about how they use inquiry in their chemistry classrooms.  My four questions are:

    Are you looking for that one website that has an abundance of chemistry knowledge?  Well, I came across and it is filled with all types of chemistry information.

Connecting and Collaborating with ACS

As this is my first blog post, I’d like to introduce myself to the ChemEdX community. I currently teach Chemistry I, Introduction to Organic and Biochemistry, and AP Chemistry at The University High School of Indiana. I use the Chemistry Modeling Curriculum in my classroom

Types of Chemical Reactions

I expect that most high school chemistry teachers assign some type of laboratory related to types of chemical reactions including synthesis, decomposition, single replacement and double replacement reactions. I have used several published versions, but I am sharing my modifications.

Time required: 

20 minutes prep, 40 minutes laboratory, 15-20 minutes discussion
